Currently playing in Mesh:
s://./mesh.rochester
Bass player who can also sing some leads and backing vocals.
I can cover most styles - Rock (Classic/Progressive/Psychedelic/Alternative/Modern/Garage/Punk), Rockabilly/Psychobilly/Cowpunk, Metal, Alt.Country/Country, Blues. I prefer to play originals, but don't mind being in a cover band, or even doing sessions if you need to record. It's more about the people than the specific style for me at this point.
Bands I've played in: The Brüd (punk & originals), Feedl (metal & originals), Johnny Bauer (country & originals), Laredo (country & originals), Black Eyed Rosey (classic rock & originals), It's Not Us (Indie Pop & originals), Asgard (classic rock & originals), Bauer (classic rock / 80's rock & originals). I've done one-off sit-ins with country, blues, and gospel bands and played in the jazz band in high school.
I also play sax (I have a tenor and an alto) and guitar (I have a 6-string electric), although not any of those as well as I play bass.
Check out Supersuckers for a (more) current sound I'm digging.
